Safety precautions at the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

Reading this column, and noting that it mentions a similar structure collapsed, I got to wondering if the area in the direction the tower is leaning is cordoned off for safety, or when this thing goes will there be a number of flattened picnickers underneath it?

Well, they let people up in the tower, so I’m not sure the picnickers are the most pressing concern.

Man, that’s the type of quote you expect to read in the news article after the tower collapses two weeks later.

Unsurprisingly, the Tower is now constantly monitored, so even very minor movements get detected.

Bumped with another article on the topic (from 2018).
